Jane Hirshfield and Patricia Smith

Jane Hirshfield’s new book of poems is Ledger. “She has elaborated a sensuously philosophical art that imposes a pause in our fast-forward habits of mind,” wrote Rosanna Warren. “Image by image, in language at once mysterious and commonplace, her poems clear a space for reflection and change.” Patricia Smith’s latest collection of poetry is Incendiary Art—“an epic in five movements where history becomes tragedy, becomes farce, becomes fable,” wrote Marlon James. “Where the reader becomes complicit, where outcomes burn into forgotten memories, and where nobody gets off the hook.”
